What’s the catch?
There’s no catch, really.
Despite a fair amount of advice against it, i’ve decided to run this project on a pay-what-you-want model, and supplement donations from members with my own savings and “day job.” I plan to pursue this for as long as i manage, and hope to be able to leave all the content i create accessible, free of charge, indefinitely, to anybody interested — i believe this would be the happiest solution for everybody involved 🙂
If you derive value from my work and find yourself in a position to give something back, then you’re kindly invited to become a recurring donor — just think about it as something equivalent to occasionally buying me a beer or a coffee in appreciation for some of my stories and experience 😉 The more metaphorical drinks i get from you, the more time and energy i’ll have for this.
For those of you to whom even an occasional coffee or beer would be a financial or psychological burden, no worries — please enjoy my work guilt free, and make the best out of it!
Monthly donations make it the smoothest for me to manage my budget and plan ahead. Sweet, heartfelt rewards await — i hope you enjoy getting postcards!
You can do this via Patreon:Become a Patron!
or via PayPal — click on the link to choose the donation level:
(PayPal subscribers will receive the same rewards as Patreon subscribers, according to the chosen tier.)
If you want to contribute but don’t feel quite ready or able to commit to a recurring donation yet, one-time donations will also help a lot!
Send $10 via PayPal
This will fund a whole day of on-the-road expenses when i’m traveling. You will get my gratitude as a personalized, handwritten note on a postcard made from one of my photos 🙂 Click on the image to choose — you’ll be prompted for recipient names and mailing address on checkout.
Send any amount in any way
Send any amount via PayPal, TransferWise (firstname.lastname@example.org), or wire transfers in Brazilian Reais to Banco do Brasil or in Ukrainian Hryvnias to Privat Bank — i’ll send you a unique, private, short video thanking you from somewhere special along my next trip!
Sponsoring a piece of equipment i need is another great way to help me! I’m working on a budget for my wife’s cycle touring rig for our journey this coming Spring/Summer, and will update this section soon.
Partnerships, sponsorship proposals, and other ways to help
I am working to include other options such as cryptocurrency and affiliate links. I’m also open to any other offers you may have, including partnerships, sponsorship deals, and so on. If you really want to help but none of the above works for you, please write me a message, and we’ll find a solution <3
